Registration: Registration for the 2016-2017 CYO Basketball Season will be held in the school's gym:

Registration forms in excel are available for you to print and complete in advance and bring with you. Select the appropriate tab at the bottom for your grade.

Also see the Introductory Letter to the 2016-2017 Season from Chris Fields, athletic director.

The registration forms include the dates for intramural evaluation and travel try-outs.

The following applies to the 2016-2017 CYO basketball season:

Eligibility: All area youth are invited to participate in basketball at St. Martin's.  However, there are size limits to our program.  Out of all applications received on the two registration days, priority will be given to:

  1. Parishioners of St. Martin de Porres
  2. Parishioners of neighboring Catholic parishes without basketball programs
  3. Players returning from last year
  4. Players new to the program

Attention Catholic YouthOne of the primary purposes of CYO is the spiritual development of Catholic youth.  In keeping with this purpose, all Catholic children wishing to play basketball must be enrolled in a religious education program.  If you are enrolled in a religious education program in another parish, a letter confirming registration from that religious education director must be turned in to the Athletic Director by September 30.  We cannot accept registration forms for Catholic children that are not enrolled in religious education. This does not apply to the boy's high school league at Gold's Gym.

Children who register for religious education at St. Martin's also must regularly attend classes. If these children also participate in CYO basketball, then they may be suspended from playing CYO basketball. Our program requires that all Catholics provide proof of registration for religious education. Our parish enforces this at annual registration and our parish will enforce this throughout the CYO season. Thus, any excessive, unexcused absences by CYO participants from St. Martin's religious education classes may result in removal from the CYO program until attendance improves and work is made-up.

Travel Eligibility:

CYO High School Boys Intramural League: There will be two sessions this year for the H.S. league:
